The Belstaff Men’s Autumn Winter ’15 collection takes its inspiration from the Ton-Up Boys of the 1950’s. Heavily into their rock’n’roll and motorcycles, these ‘greasers’ (as they would become known) would rendezvous at cafes and attempt to do a ‘ton’ (exceed speeds of 100mph) on their custom-made bikes.
In Belstaff, the fearless explorer and fashion enthusiast alike, can discover an easy yet refined luxury for a modern lifestyle influenced by Belstaff’s rich history and storied archives. Pulling from these inspirations, Belstaff has developed a designer fashion collection suitable for both men and women, including leather jackets, sumptuous knitwear, elegant dresses and accessories for those finishing touches.
Founded in 1924, in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire England, with the innovation of the first water resistant wax cotton, Belstaff quickly became embraced by a group relishing the freedom and daring that the fabrics allowed. Over the years, some of the great and the good have worn the brand from historical titans T.E. Lawrence, Amelia Earhart and Che Guevera to more modern names like Ewan McGregor, Jemma Kidd and British trial racer Sammy Miller. Belstaff’s classic belted wax cotton 4-pocket jacket became an instantly recognizable staple for the racing set throughout the 20th century.
